they are going to vote for him. john mccain saying he would oppose any filibuster on his confirmation vote. >> it seems michael. there aren't. lined see gram of south carolina has indicated he would like to see president obama nominate someone else and chuck hagel's name removed for contention but there is no one saying they are going to filibuster. it looks like it will go through. you have seen very powerful outside groups at play in the election weigh in heavily, spending half a million dollars on nationally televised ads against chuck hagel's nomination but it doesn't look like there are big road blocks here. >> national televised ads against chuck hagel have no impact on the decision. >> their plan was to target democrats up for reelection in 2014, hope the pressure of the public to call their elected officials and get them to vote no on hagel. there are some folks like jim inhofe, the ranking member on the senate armed services, who will vote no. >> is itt doesn't have to be 100%. >> the bottom line is there aren't enough republicans out there saying
in the middle of his term. remember, he tried, as did a lot of democrats and john mccain to get immigration reform through in 2007. and that's when the backlash grew. and then when the bush administration was deemed a failure, which many of us believed broadly that it was, a lot of conservatives said that's true. and instead of trying to moderate the party then, they said the problem was this compassionate conservative guy was too liberal. so they pulled the party way over to the right. the problem they have now is the tea party folks are the folks who kind of got them there in 2010. and it's as if the republicans are saying well, we needed your votes to drive this car to the country club, but we really don't want to let you inside the country club. so they're courting a kind of class warfare in the republican party over the next couple of years. >> e.j., one of the things i think you have written about more eloquently than anybody else is the idea of -- you've written ambitiously i should say about the idea of civility, that we can have reasonable disagreements about even very profound dif
that did not harm but would gather information. this administration ran against john mccain saying, even though john mccain agreed, yeah, we don't want to water board, we don't want to do anything that somebody might someday call torture, they complained, gee, this is allowing radicals to be recruited against the united states because of the unjust nature of doing a procedure that's not harmful to someone's health, to gather information to save american lives, which it did. here we are now with this administration that thought waterboarding helped jeeyaddists -- jihadists recruit more radicals using a process of having a high administration official think to himself or herself, i don't think this may be enough. blow them up. without giving adequate consideration to civilians who will be killed, to family members who will be upset, to the ability of our enemies to use that to recruit other radicals, many times over, to replace those that have been killed with a drone strike. this administration's systemic failure to understand what the muslim brotherhood calls, quote, civilization jihad,
some of the things that john mccain has been pushing hard. doesn't the united states have to do more? >> i think the answer is yes. i mean, it's clear that there are risks in acting, but i think we have to take a look at what are the risks and costs of not acting. and i think we have to keep in mind the kind of red lines that the president has established in the use of chemical weapons or the israelis have established in terms of -- >> just look at what they've acknowledged in munich that they were involved in that strike which everyone sort of knew, but interesting that he would say so. >> and what it highlights is things are going to happen. you'd rather put us in a position that rather than being driven to do something, we're in a position to try to effect the landscape more and we don't wait to be in a position where we have to react, but we're in a position where we try to influence more what the shape of the landscape is going to be. >> finally, as we look forward to john when in anbrennan's con hearing, how much blow back is in the united states because of the drone attacks an
. and the gop is losing latino support. john mccain got 31%. romney only got 27%. i suspect that rubio is not only being used for his talents. >> i think the republicans are trying to rebrand this. but let's look at rubio's numbers. rubio, among the latinos in florida, he overwhelmingly won the cuban vote. but he didn't win the rest of the latino vote. when you look at history where he actually looks at, he attacks, for example, private education. and i think, again, that's the only way you're going to win the latino vote is to start talking to them straight. >> is he a leading contender for 2016. and does this further embellish if he does well on tuesday night? >> again, they're reintroducing the brand. and he's the headliner for that. he can't backtrack like he did so quickly on immigration. >> so on climate change and a lot of things, he's all over the place. >> he basically has to identify the problem with the republican party. i also encourage him to start talking a little bit about he keeps saying he doesn't believe in govt entitlement programs. unfortunately, right now, the gove

-- [inaudible] >> excuse me? you need to be a very big fire that committee wall, wouldn't you? >> john mccain. >> career on the same page now come the members of general staff on where the future of this lies. pakistan has to take ownership of all anti-terror operations, absolutely all of them to be sustainable and to be seen as legitimate in the eyes of our people. you know, there's been a lot of drones strikes next door, so in any case, you know al qaeda -- the whole al qaeda list is pretty much through our cooperation, a joint after a night spent in this administration will agree to also. >> you talk about the process in afghanistan being afghan led. president karzai had this fact developed in both pakistan and roadmaps of 2015. that roadmap subsidies pakistan for the united states in terms of brokering face-to-face talks between the afghan taliban and mr. karzai's government. it's been accepted by your government, so i'd like to know how much progress your government has made in terms of the reaching peace talks. mr. karzai's government as part of that effort would like your government to
